An impromptu visit to Highdown Gardens
My daughter had car problems today which prevented her doing what she had planned; as I was in her area I popped in the we decided to go off for a walk locally. Haven't been to Highdown Gardens for a while and, in my opinion, I think Spring is the best season there... that's not to say the other seasons aren't!! Highdown was created in a chalk pit so all the plants/bushes etc had to be chalk tolerant.
We had a bite to eat and a cuppa in the Tea Rooms before a wander around the garden. It wasn't overcrowded either, given it's the school holidays.
The sun shone and it got warmer as the time went on....
A lover of wildlife and birds in particular and a keen photographer
who's learning all the time!
For me there's nothing better than the great outdoors and escaping into
it as often as I can; even if it's only a walk very locally. I love the
sea and water in any form. There's something magical about reflections
in very still water.
